#thebookthief set: Geoffrey Rush

zusakbooks:

HANS HUBERMANN

image

Firstly: Geoffrey Rush knows accordions. Second: he likes questions. Thirdly? He likes questions ABOUT accordions, and questions about basically everything he could learn on Hans Hubermann and The Book Thief in the short amount of time we talked in Berlin, in April.

image

Probably the best thing I can say about Geoffrey (and the same goes for Emily Watson) is that he was just so…normal. He treated me like a friend. It was like we were talking about a book we’d both read, and he spoke about it like it was something alive, and something he wanted to fight for.

image

At one point he referred to the two accordion songs I mentioned in the book. I thought, ‘Jesus, he HAS read it,’ and that’s one of the strangest, nicest honours I can imagine. This is one the finest, best-loved actors to ever come out our country, and he’d read The Book Thief

image

As we talked, I knew it wasn’t even necessary to see him acting the role. I didn’t need to see him take Liesel, and then Max, into his home. Some things are better left unseen.

Some things you just know.

The rowdy English folk-punk band Skinny Lister shows up at the NPR Music offices bearing lots of beer, some mysterious alcohol in an even-more-mysterious jug, and an assortment of instruments. Barely controlled mayhem ensues.

Dana Falconberry’s songs are gentle, almost invariably delicate, sometimes mysterious and frequently feather-light. But her music’s sweet, intricate softness never stands in for strength. Watch her and five bandmates perform three songs at the Tiny Desk.

Miss Mousie & The Rigamarole - You are My Sunshine (Best Laid Plans)

miss mousie & the rigamarole - you are my sunshine

you know how some people buy books and buy books and buy books and then don’t get around to reading them for forever, even if it’s a book they’re really excited about? yeah, i’m like that with music. i have unopened cds and unplayed mp3s all over the place. but i decided to finally sort and file my unlistened to mp3s tonight and i found this album and now i am just filled with feelings. y’all know how i feel about valerie’s live version of this song, right? godddddddd, why haven’t i been listening to this on repeat?

A fearful instrument that looks like a cash register, and sounds worse, produces gasps of pleasure at the Orpheum this week. It is called a piano accordion and its behavior is shameless.
Minneapolis Journal, December 16, 1912 (seen in Squeeze This! by Marion Jacobson)
